Admission Requirements for the Bachelor of Fine Arts - Production Program
Thank you for your interest in the FSU College of Motion Picture Arts. Admission into the college is highly selective; please take your time to carefully complete the application for Bachelor of Fine Arts in Production program.
In order to begin, you must have the FSUSN that was assigned to you by the FSU Office of Admissions when you submitted your general university application. If you do not have an FSUSN, you will first need to apply to FSU to be assigned one. Click here to begin that application.
NOTE: All BFA applicants who have been admitted by Florida State University have been moved forward in the admissions process and applications are currently being reviewed. All students will be notified if they have been selected for an interview or not in late February. Interview dates and details will be released at that time.
Both an FSU general application and a College of Motion Picture Arts application will need to be completed and submitted for admission consideration to the College of Motion Picture Arts. The College of Motion Picture Arts application includes:
If you are applying to both the Animation and Digital Arts and Productions programs, an additional 500 word essay is required in which you should explain why you would like to be considered for both majors.
All materials must be submitted electronically by October 16, 2013 at 11:59 pm EST or your application will be incomplete and not reviewed by the admissions committee. Mailed or faxed materials will be not be accepted.
Transfer students are welcome to apply to the program. Transfer students must complete at least 30 hours of liberal studies requirements before admission, to be completed prior to the start of fall classes. If you have questions about which specific courses will transfer to FSU, you are welcome to contact Emily Burgess, our Undergraduate Advisor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students that transfer with an A.A. degree from a Florida public institution have completed the liberal studies requirements. An electronic version of Its All Academic can be found at http://undergrad.fsu.edu/iaa.pdf, a publication we give to every student during Orientation that explains the Liberal Studies requirements at FSU.
A select number of applicants will be invited for mandatory on-campus interviews with the Motion Picture Arts admissions committee. Those selected to interview for the Fall of 2014 will be notified at least 10 days prior to the interview session. Interviews will take place from late February through March of 2014; specific dates have not yet been determined.
